Hyper Velocity in 10/22

I've been curious on at least trying hyper velocity rounds in my 10/22. I've tried 22 shorts in my henry lever action.

I know these types of rounds put more wear and tear on the gun than necessary, but I wont be shooting these rounds alot.

What is your favorite type of hyper velocity round to shoot? I only know of a few different rounds, but I'd like opinions on some before purchasing. Thanks.

I use the Remington .22 Yellow Jacket HP. I usually shoot targets at 100 yards.

Really? Remington actually makes a good rimfire round?
I was expecting first response to be CCI Stringers at least.
How about Vipers?

I use nothing from Remington in .22lr. For any occasion I feel the need for the hyper velocity stuff, I use Stingers.

I also don't use anything from Remington in my 10/22, though this is strictly by word of mouth rather than any bad expereinces I've had. I use CCI's Stinger because it is the most accurate ammo I've yet tried. I must add that I haven't tried many different factory loads because the Stingers were some of the 1st I tried. So, I just stayed with it. I installed a recoil buffer in my 10/22 for peace of mind. With all this being said, I am going to try the CCI Velocitor ammo to see how accurate it is. Much of what I've read about this ammo has been very good accuracy-wise.

How much was the recoil buffer? Also, was it hard to install?

Thanks. I truly do love CCI. Quality ammo, for sure. We will see how the hyper velocity ammo goes.

Ruger Rimfire,

I bought 2 recoil buffers (Volquarsten & Buffer Technologies) quite some time ago. So, I don't remember exactly what I paid but I gotta believe each was only about $5-6 apeice. It is very easy to install a buffer in the 10/22 and believe me I'm a klutz. Follow the Ruger instruction manual steps for disassembly. When you get to the part about removing the bolt and bolt spring assembly, the first step is to remove the bolt stop. Use a punch and remove the metal bolt stop and then install the recoil buffer in its place. That's it. It doesn't take long at all, unless of course you want to remove the bolt and bolt stop for cleaning.

Good luck.

Oops. Cant believe I missed this post yesterday. And its be exactly 24 hours! Ha. Weird.

Anyway, thanks Retsoff. Sorry, I'm not sure where my manual is at the moment, but I do have it. The bolt stop is the pin holding the bolt in/from coming out? Or is it something else?

I would like the 'peace of mind' as well if I ever choose to use hyper velocity ammo more frequently. Thanks again!

Edit: Nevermind. Found the manual. I see what you mean now! Thanks.

My 10/22 has bad accuracy with almost every hypervelocity round I've fed it; stingers, xpeditor, and viper. The Velocitors didn't do to bad though

Rugerismisticness,

Well you just sealed the deal. I have to try some of those Velocitors.

I've been shooting about 500 rnds a month through my 10-22 since centerfire ammo went nuts 2 years back. The Rem bulk ammo sucks, I had to ramp my 10-22 breech to get it to feed and it is extremely dirty. Belive me you do not want to shoot dirty ammo in sub zero temps!
As for Hyper velocity ammo; it has to meet SAMI specs, just like any other ammo to be sold in the USA so any modern 22LR will handle it with ease. Much of the X-Treme advertising is just HYPE!
A 22LR is the best way to learn about marksmanship as well as ballistics; buy ammo while it is still available, I remember when I had to show ID, register my address and sign for every round of 22LR, just like buying TNT explosives. Buy it cheap and stack it deep while you can. In 5 years you'll thank me.

for learning the lore of the retail ammo biz, for buying cheap and stacking deep, before rimfire ammo is classified as a terrorist atribute! Before your libertys are gone.
